I am a Freshman at SSU and I would recommend this university for anyone looking into the fields of art, technology, life sciences, or a nursing degree. I'm going into 3D Animation and the Vern Riffe Center for the Arts is GREAT! They keep thier computers VERY up-to-date. The Vern Riffe Center for the Arts features multiple computer labs with sooped-up iMac G5's w/ 20 inch Cinema Displays and soon they will upgrade again! Overall I can tell you by experience it's great for people interested in art or tech!
